Introduction:
Im an avid fan of Starwars movies.,I've watched all of it's episodes.And i loved them all.And i got a new genuine Darth Vader(Hashbro)-a present from my sister(though im too old for this kind of stuff-yet i still loved it :-) .,and since I already built 3 Google cardboard VR now(for the kids to enjoy).,using true biconvex lenses.,And the result is amazing.,But still i want to view and capture some image in 3D using my phones default camera.,And i want to capture images that turns into 3D that can be viewable on cardboard VR.,i knew that there are apps available for it.Or an additional device to an iphone that can do capture 3D amazingly.Yet some app like (Seene)has limitations to enjoy these features due to phones hardware issues.,And some neat apps like Carl Seizz has the ability to capture image in 3D too.,but the same problem arises -hardware issues again.,so anyone with low end iphones like mine wont enjoy some of the features of VR has to offer.,And i got concerned about it.,how about those who has the VR and still loved their phones,and does'nt want to upgrade their phones yet.But like to enjoy and experience viewing their own pictures in 3D.How about those who cant enjoy latest apps for VR,just because of version incompatibility.So the purpose of this project is to enjoy it at least that wont cost you anything.That wont necessarily or require you to buy an additional gadget or app to capture 3D images.,I found the solution myself on how to do it without PC assistance.,I kept researching and reading how 3D works and finally realize how it works.In these project i'll show you how to capture and turn that in to 3D image using your one and only loveable old iphone.
So lets get started.

Step 1: Materials Needed


• an iphone or ipod
at least running iOS 7 
•or an Android phone
at least running 4.3 up
•Photoshop Mix App
•your Subject for photography(anything)
-links will be provided in some part of this instructables
•an optional use of tripod is a big help but not necessary.
NOTE:
•a basic knowledge in photo editing is an anvantage-though steps on how to create 3D will be discussed in some part of this instructables.

Step 2: Steps and Guides

"Easy to follow Steps in image form below"
•"How to capture and turn it into 3D image using Photoshop Mix App"
1.Prepare your subject for photoshoot(human or anything you want)
2.Shoot it once and move to right or left few inches to change an Angle shot(move st least 2 to 5 inches far from your original position- as seen on image guide below).After moving- shoot again on your subject for the 2nd time.
3.Check your photoalbum and check your picture how it goes.,(if they closely look the same and If your satisfied with it.Proceed to next step.
4.You should prepare a blank image of black or white with a partition line in the middle of the image as your guide for separating two images.This blank image will be used as your base background only as guide.
5.Launch your Photoshop Mix app,Open a new project on + sign found on top right corner of the app.
-once the new project is launch.Tap on the left + square to add your BASE(blank image with partition in the middle)Then Tap on the +square on right side to Load your 1st image of the subject you captured during photoshoot before.Use 2 finger Swipe to right filling the half part of the blank image.
••2 Fingers Swipe Technics••
•2 fingers Swipe move the image from left or right
•Pinch decreases the size of the image
•2 Finger Spread increases the size of the image.
*play along with it.,sooner and later you'll get used to it*
•(now your Base/Background is with one Image of your Subject 1 on the right)
6.Save your project by Tapping on save icon (3rd from top right of the app)
7.Go back to Main Menu & open a New Project.,then Tap the +square on left to Load your previous saved project.
8.Then once the saved project was loaded.,that's now your Based with the image of Subject 1 with it,Tap on the right+square to Load your 2nd image you captured from your photoshoot.Same procedure 2fingers swipe to the Left to fill the left half part of the Base.(look 2Finger Swipe Technics)
9.Once you successfully Embedded your 2 image in one whole base background 
•equally filled the whole area of the template.Saved it as usual how you save it before.
10.Check your photoalbum now.,you should see the last Template you Saved on Photoshop Mix App.View it on landscape and
•Load it on your Google VR aligning it centered on image.And view your 3D image you created.
Note:Photoshop Mix has a lot to offer.,you can edit,combine,cut or merged and many more.,Just explore it.,It's one of my favorites for photo editing.

Step 3: Steps in Image Form

1.Shot 1
2.Move 2 to 5 inches apart from your original first position and shoot again as your 2nd image.

•daytime shooting
•night time shooting
Both on N70me

Step 4: Launching the App

Launch your Photoshop Mix App.,and start creating a new project by following the steps in image form.

Step 5: After Saving the 1st Template

After saving the 1st template on your photoalbum.,Create a new project again using that 1st template you save by loading it up as your new project.,
Then load up your 2nd captured image by tapping the square+ sign on right as seen on image.And drag it to fill the left half part of your project.
•Finally after equally embedded your 2 captured image into one image side by side.
Save it as usual by tapping the Save icon on 3 from top right of the project page.

Step 6: Sample Created 3D Images

Step 9: More Information About 3D


•How Do 3D Glasses Work?
3D Stereoscopic glasses are nothing new. In fact you had them when you were a kid and probably didn't even know it. Remember the ViewMaster™ that showed all the cool Disney characters in full 3d? The ViewMaster™ allowed you to look at two pictures of the same thing taken from a slightly different view point and tricked your brain into seeing one 3d image.
In order to see things in 3D each eye must see a slightly different picture. This is done in the real world by your eyes being spaced apart so each eye has its own slightly different view. The brain then puts the two pictures together to form one 3D image that has depth to it.
Still want to know how do 3D glasses work? Keep reading!
Anaglyphic [ana·glyph·ic /"a-n&-'gli-fik/] adjective -- A stereoscopic motion or still picture in which the right component of a composite image usually red in color is superposed on the left component in a contrasting color to produce a three-dimensional effect when viewed through correspondingly colored filters in the form of spectacles.
The mode of 3D presentation you are most familiar with are the paper glasses with red and blue lenses. The technology behind 3D, or stereoscopic, movies is actually pretty simple. They simply recreate the way humans see normally. 
Since your eyes are about two inches apart, they see the same picture from slightly different angles. Your brain then correlates these two images in order to gauge distance. This is called binocular vision - ViewMasters™ and binoculars mimic this process by presenting each eye with a slightly different image. 
Now you're learning! Need to know more about how do 3D glasses work? Read on. The binocular vision system relies on the fact that our two eyes are spaced about 2 inches (5 centimeters) apart. Therefore, each eye sees the world from a slightly different perspective, and the binocular vision system in your brain uses the difference to calculate distance. Your brain has the ability to correlate the images it sees in its two eyes even though they are slightly different. 
If you've ever used a ViewMaster™ or a stereoscopic viewer, you have seen your binocular vision system in action. In a View-Master, each eye is presented with an image. Two cameras photograph the same image from slightly different positions to create these images. Your eyes can correlate these images automatically because each eye sees only one of the images. 
A 3D film viewed without glasses is a very strange sight and may appear to be out of focus, fuzzy or out of register. The same scene is projected simultaneously from two different angles in two different colors, red and cyan (or blue or green). Here's where those cool glasses come in -- the colored filters separate the two different images so each image only enters one eye. Your brain puts the two pictures back together and now you're dodging a flying meteor! 
3D glasses make the movie or television show you're watching look like a 3-D scene that's happening right in front of you. With objects flying off the screen and careening in your direction, and creepy characters reaching out to grab you, wearing 3-D glasses makes you feel like you're a part of the action - not just someone sitting there watching a movie. Considering they have such high entertainment value, you'll be surprised at how amazingly simple 3-D glasses are.

Two cameras photograph the same image from slightly different positions to create these images. Your eyes can correlate these images automatically because each eye sees only one of the images. 
The reason why you wear 3-D glasses in a movie theater is to feed different images into your eyes just like a View-Master does. The screen actually displays two images, and the glasses cause one of the images to enter one eye and the other to enter the other eye. There are two common systems for doing this: 
Although the red/green or red/blue system is now mainly used for television 3-D effects, and was used in many older 3-D movies. In this system, two images are displayed on the screen, one in red and the other in blue (or green). The filters on the glasses allow only one image to enter each eye, and your brain does the rest. You cannot really have a color movie when you are using color to provide the separation, so the image quality is not nearly as good as with the polarized system. 
At Disney World, Universal Studios and other 3-D venues, the preferred method uses polarized lenses because they allow color viewing. Two synchronized projectors project two respective views onto the screen, each with a different polarization. The glasses allow only one of the images into each eye because they contain lenses with different polarization.
